in loveHey ladies, so today's Hot Topic is, Do you think it's possible for a couple, married or in a long term relationship, to fall in and out of love with each other? I was talking about this with a friend, and she stated that once you fall out of love, you can't fall in love with your dh/so again and should leave. But, I tend to think that if the sparke is gone and you find that your not in love anymore, but wan to make it work, you can fall in love again! So, what do you ladies think?

I don't believe in falling out of love. If that is the case, it wasn't love in the first place. Love lasts hundreds of years after you pass. You can choose not to like each other anymore but love will always be there. I think people take their own time to get past the "hunnymoon phase"....But that's just my oppinion.

I think you can have enough issues to fall out of "like" with someone.... but I don't think the love for someone can go away.

I think if you do not nuture your relationship you can feel that way. However, I believe it is possible to gain back what you once had if both partners are willing.

I don't think that I could ever fall out of love.  I could get annoyed and mad at him and even divorce him over some things but I think there would always be love for him in my heart.

Personally I feel that if the spark has gone, and you both want to make it work, then the spark was never completely gone to begin with but was fizzling. I feel if there is truely no love left then you would not have the urge or power to make it work. There has to be some sort of desire left to want to make it work.

You have a very wise way of thinking about it.

 i am not sure. i could never see my dh and i falling out of love for one another. we get really extra mushy when we are not around each other for more than an hour lol. i guess it depends on the person.

 Good question.  My husband and I have been to the point of nearly seperating, but I don't think we ever fell out of love, we just got frustrated
